Lot Description
1872 25C Washington Octagonal 25 Cents, BG-723, Low R.6, MS61 PCGS. The Washington Head varieties are among the most coveted Period Two types, partly because of crossover appeal to Washingtonia specialists, but mostly because they stand out from the crowd of Indian and Liberty designs. When the present piece is studied with a loupe, the portrait shows a few thin marks, and the central reverse field appears glossy. Encapsulated in old green label holder. Population: 6 in 61, 11 finer (8/07).
